Introducing Skylab: AdColony’s Creative Innovators

Posted May 16, 2017

Before any mobile ad creative shatters benchmarks or wins awards, it begins as an idea — an idea to elevate a story, to create a thumb-stopping experience, to look beyond impressions and drive meaningful audience engagement. Here, those ideas come to life at the AdColony Skylab, our in-house group of 60+ award-winning designers and engineers who push the limits of what’s possible in mobile.

In 2016 alone, Skylab produced over 600 videos with custom dynamic end cards and over 300 rich media campaigns fully optimized for the mobile experience. The result? Beyond the many exceeded KPIs and countless engagement benchmarks shattered, the team took home 76 awards from leading industry events around the globe.

Elevating Mobile Storytelling
Every day, Skylab harnesses best-in-class technology that leverages the unique and ever-changing capabilities of mobile devices to craft immersive & effective ad creatives. By layering in their keen understanding of mobile consumer behavior into the process, the resulting elevated ad experience is just as much art as it is science.

The Mission
As part of Skylab’s mission to create full-screen impactful, and interactive experiences that turn heads and win awards, they are dedicated to delivering big ideas — not just impressions — for today’s top brands and mobile publishers.
